You write that had it been countries like England committing the same "egregious atrocities" as Israel "the criticism would be just as scathing." Not only is the criticism not just as scathing, but it goes one step further: you can write a post like this and not even ACKNOWLEDGE those atrocities when you say if countries like England "had" been committing atrocities: like the British sexual abuse and torture of Iraqi prisoners in occupied Iraq, documented fully by the Palestinian journalist Zaki Chehab. (Inside the Resistance, Nation Books, 2005, Ch. 4). You go beyond not scathingly criticizing it by refusing to acknowledge its existence; or, perhaps you didn't know of its existence, in which case you don't really have enough knowledge about atrocities by other Western democracies to be posting about its supposed non-existence, do you?
